Host: Pete and Susan O. are the hosts of this event.
Directions: From Hwy 9: Approximately 1 mile north of the "Round-About" on the north edge of Breckenridge is a stop light for TIGER ROAD (NOT Tiger Run)
1) Turn EAST on Tiger ROAD (aka Co Rd 6)
2) Follow Tiger Road, past the golf course - it will turn to dirt.
3) Start watching for CQR Signs. Approx 3 miles onto the dirt road, you will be making a LEFT turn on CR 354 (I think it’s the 2nd left and it is NOT marked). I’ll try to have a sign or banner there. Travel in on this about 1 mile, you should see a big CQR Banner.
4) Pick your own camp spot anywhere near enough to socialize as you wish.

Disclaimer: The rider assumes all responsibility to ride within their own capabilities on any of these trail rides. The trail rating guide system takes into consideration “typical” trail width of the ride, the steepness and the trail surface composition. These ratings are ONLY intended to be guides to make trail use easier and safer and to encourage you to assess your own capabilities before venturing out on any trail. Trail ratings are used to indicate the expertise needed to drive the trail under normal conditions but these conditions are subject to rapid change in Colorado (ie- weather, boulders, etc).
